Rotation of the International Space Station crew, the third flight of an Italian-builtMultipurpose Logistics Module delivering additional scientific racks, equipment and suppliesfor the space station, and two spacewalks highlight the STS-105 mission of Discovery,scheduled for launch from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.The crew changeout is the second for the ISS, and the logistical module, named Leonardo,is making its second flight to the space station. An identical module named Raffaello hasflown once.The STS-105 mission will involve three crews. They are the four-member crew ofDiscovery, the three members of the Expedition Three crew to be launched to the spacestation, and the three members of the Expedition Two crew returning to Earth aboard theshuttle.Commanding the Discovery crew will be Scott Horowitz, an Air Force colonel with a Ph.D.in aerospace engineering, making his fourth flight into space. Pilot will be Frederick W."Rick" Sturckow, a Marine major, former test pilot and veteran of a previous flight to thespace station. Patrick G.

Cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin, 41, fromRSC Energia and on his first space mission, will serve as a researcher and flight engineer.The Expedition Two crew returning to Earth aboard Discovery is cosmonaut Yury Usachev,its commander, and astronauts Jim Voss and Susan Helms. They were taken to the stationaboard Discovery on a flight that launched March 8. Expedition Two began the majorscientific investigations aboard Destiny that are the purpose of the orbiting laboratory, andpaved the way for more to come.About 46 hours after its launch Discovery is scheduled to dock with the International SpaceStation.
